Very few TV shows can maintain a real consistent quality after many years.
Especially after going through numerous cast and personel changes. The only
example I can think of are "Doctor Who" and MST3K. The level of quality the
show managed to maintain over the course of a decade is very impressive.
Especially with one solitary premise. MST3K was not only one of the few TV
shows I watch, but the show I looked forward to watching more than any
I watched the final episode laughing, but at the same time feeling a great deal of sadness. It's hard to believe that after all this time, the show has now come to an end. Although the show will live on in our hearts, VHS collections and tape tradings, it's sad that there will no longer be any new episodes produced. Thank you, Best Brains, for a wonderful ten years of a wonderful show. You will be missed.
I am proud to say that I am one of the seemingly very few British fans of this program. It all started one afternoon as I switched over to the Sci-fi Channel in hope of some cheesy 1950 horror film to sit and mock. I was only slightly disappointed when I was met with a pale coloured 1980's thing about the mind and memory or something but it looked bad so I watched it. After a few minutes I finally noticed that there were three badly superimposed people at the bottom of the screen mocking the film. So I sat, transfixed at what turned out to be on of the funniest hour and a half's I'd ever spent! The sharp wit of robot named 'Crow' was superb and the jokes really made me laugh consistently through the whole show! Once it had ended I was drenched in sweat from being subjected to one of the longest stinks of pure hilarity ever! Now I watch it, which my friends every week and am about as avid a fan as is possible. The show takes what would be insanely poor entertainment and turns it into something so funny, so original, so unmissable it simply cannot be given justice in any mere review! My advice is, should you ever see this on TV or in a listings magazine or even in a dusty corner of your local rental store WATCH IT NOW! If you like old tat, superbly well observed wit and timeless humour you will love this fantastic show! Even the scenes between the movie have been crafted like a modern day bad horror with a thinly veiled pseudo-plot running throughout the whole series too! Long live MST3K and long live anyone who appreciates how good it is!
One Saturday afternoon I was foolish enough to eat a dish of pastina
pasta) while watching MST3K. I laughed so hard I started to choke on the
food and nearly passed out from lack of oxygen. After I cleared my
esophagus, I threw out the pastina and continued watching the show.
If I stood in front of a firing squad and the warden asked me what was my final wish, I would request one last episode of MST3K. If you haven't seen this show, you haven't lived.
Pearl Forrester rules!
Very good show. Different and unique as well! I love this show. It is on the Sci-fi channel now. If you have this channel, check it out. All it is, is a guy and his two robot friends make fun of old, crappy movies in their own private theater. See it when ever you get the chance!
Truly one of the funniest shows ever on tv, up there with Police Squad!,
Monty Python's Flying Circus, Fawlty Towers, and the early years of SNL.
not for this show, I never would have seen such great flicks as Eegah,
Angel's Revenge, The Beginning of the End, or (fanfare) Manos, the Hands
Fate. Every friend or family member I've turned on to this show has loved
it. I just wish the sci-fi channel wouldn't show it at such goofy times
(11:00 on Sunday mornings??? I'm either working or asleep).
I love to watch this show. Because it's funny, and you won't worry about payin' 4 the movie like in the theaters. And the movie's good too! I have a video collection of MST3K tapes.(They're a little hard to find 'em.Unless U buy em' on th' internet.)Anyways, Mst3k's a cool show. Watch it!
Even if you don't like MST3K if you watch it you will bust out of your skin laughing. You'll laugh so hard you will start crying.
This is the best show I have ever seen despite the fact that its premise is stupidly simple. It's pretty much just a man and 2 robots making fun of the worst movies ever made. The creativity involved is amazing, though, and every week I (and thousands of other fans of the show) fall out of my chair laughing while watching it. It is the funniest (and maybe the weirdest) thing I've ever seen on TV. If you've never seen this, you're missing out on truly great television. Check your local listings and watch it.
This is one of the most hilarious TV shows on TV & one of the most creatively made shows.This program places a man & his bots (present day,Mike Nelson & Tom Servo & Crow,older generation,Joel Robinson(Joel Hodgson),Tom Servo,Crow),true it'll look cheap because it's a low-budget show but there's a high good chance that you could care less about it,& it has an array of films that truly do deserve to be on this show,true you might wish that they could place in a modern known B-film to as least a decent film(yes you can heckle at good films) but that's more the fault of the networks there on because frankly they've never bother to help fund the show more,true to those who aren't impressed with MST3K(yes they're actually some),you might think of M&TB as "3 guys who make fun of a lot of other things while they heckle the film,& think they can get away with it",false the only reason why they tease on consirderably good things(Jim Carrey,Japan) is because they try to appeal to different sorts of audience,(theres obviously more but I won't get into that).I admit perhaps bashing on countries(basically countries-only don't mind the rest) is a little ethnically offensive but remember what I said above.
...but you have to be in the audience to agree.
For those of us in the intended audience, the iconoclasts or nerds or quirky people who love this show, it's the best comedy that TV has ever done. It probably helps to understand the humor if you're from the heartland of the US and about the same age as the writing staff, but those aren't necessary qualifications for finding this funny. MST3K takes the bad sf, giant-bug, and made-for-TV movies I will watch anyway on a rainy afternoon and makes jokes at their expense. Bad sound, bad lighting, bad dialog, bad acting, bad costumes, bad music: none of these are safe from the MST writers. Sometimes I feel guilty for laughing at their insult humor, but I can't deny they do it well. They excel at making interesting connections between what they are watching and pop culture, as when the potato- eating gal dies in Deathstalker, and they quip "She was all-righta" (a joke on an old advertising slogan), or when in Gorgo, they came up with a clever rewriting of lyrics from Lightfoot's "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."
The two actors who voiced Crow, Trace and Bill, are my favorites of the performers, but I like the whole bunch. The sketches are hit and miss, but if they sing, that one is almost guaranteed to be a winner.
If you don't get it, I'm not angry at you. Many people don't connect with it. Some of the people who made the bad movies they poke fun at are resentful. (But dudes, your movies weren't great. I'm sorry, but they just weren't. Deal with it.) But for me, watching and rewatching every episode five or six times has provided me with countless hours of healthy laughter.
